Learn to speak the local lingo
This is a very simple foreign language phrase book, but unlike printed ones, this app speaks the phrases too. There are ten languages, four of which are European. It would have been nice to have more local ones instead of the Thai and Vietnamese that are included, so it does depend on where you go for holidays and business trips as to how useful this is to you.
It is a very simple app and all the languages are displayed on the home screen. Select one and you will see a list of phrase categories on the left. Select a category and the phras¬es are displayed on the right.
Tapping a phrase speaks it out loud and prints it at the top of the screen. Most of the categories are disabled and in the free app there are just greetings, essentials and numbers. All the others must be purchased and this costs £1.99 for each language or £13.99 for all of them. The iPad version isn’t bad, but the iPhone is obviously more convenient to carry.

Here is a list of ten of the most popular apps on the iPad at the moment.
1 – WordPress
This is an app for reading and updating your blog or website whilst on your iPad. You can make quick edits, or just check out your new comments. You can do most of the usual things you would want to do with WordPress.
2 – Kindle
This app allows you to purchase ebooks from Amazon. These are books that you keep but that are electronic digital versions. You can use the Kindle app to download or read them.
If your old laptop is becoming redundant, it may be time to consider replacing it. You can either purchase a new laptop or opt for an iPad. You may be wondering whether an iPad will truly replace your old laptop or whether it simply has too many limitations to successfully carry out all the tasks you would usually perform on your laptop.
An iPad is good for leisure purposes but its abilities are lacking in relation to the laptop. You cannot use an iPad to burn music to a CD or watch a DVD and it is not easy to print from an iPad, useless you have a compatible printer and the correct app. The battery life of an iPad far exceeds that of a laptop. In the absence of mains electricity, a laptop can sustain around two to three hours of usage while an iPad can last around 12 hours. An iPad is lighter and more comfortable to use than a laptop. It does not get warm, lacks the noise of a laptop’s fan and you can take it anywhere you like with the greatest of ease.

Kudos have to go to Apple for taking the totally dead, and I mean Dodo dead, consumer tablet computing concept and not only breathing new life into it but turning it into an object of desire with the iPad. The new iPad 2 does not feel so aspirational. Sure, there is an increase in the wow factor but not to the degree that you those who have already invested in an iPad will feel compelled to upgrade immediately, and perhaps more importantly convince non-iPad owners to buy into the Apple dream at the expense of the Android one. Which side to take in the tablet wars could be about to become even more problematical with the first of the Android 3.0 Honeycomb devices, the Motorola Xoom, about to hit the shops. You can see our review of the Motorola Xoom here later in the week, but back to the iPad 2 and what the new version brings to the tablet party.
CUPERTINO, Calif. — Apple will give $100 back to shoppers who bought a first-generation iPad at one of its retail stores or through its online store in the past two weeks.
This Apple policy kicks in when the company permanently reduces the price for one of its products. Apple unveiled a new version of its tablet computer, the iPad 2, on Wednesday. At the same time, it cut prices for old iPads by $100.
Apple Inc. says retail customers need to present the original purchase receipt and request a refund within 14 days of the price reduction. Online shoppers should call Apple customer service.
People who want to return their first-generation iPads can do so within 14 days of purchase.
